Re: Seagate ultra u320 scsi drive
SCSI is a class of knowledge on its own - drive numbering etc etc - Have you set up the drive cable with the termination block at the end ??.
There are plenty of recovery programs around ( if you have a failing drive or deleted filed etc) but first you have to get the drive 'recognised' by the system.
Try also to Google on "SCSI setup" solutions and try www.youtube.com also. There maybe a video on how to set the drive up, there.

First, determine if your "motherboard" will support a SCSI
hard drive interface. The type of SCSI drives that are available are
Wide Ultra SCSI (40MB/sec), Wide Ultra 2 SCSI (80MB/sec), Ultra 160 SCSI
(160MB/sec) and Ultra 320 SCSI (320MB/sec). Today's standard for SCSI
drives is the SCA SCSI which has an 80 pin female cable to drive
information from the drive to the system board.
Set the jumpers. The drive should have jumpers on it that were set by
the manufacturer. Setting the jumpers allows the drive to be recognized
by your computer's hardware. If the jumpers have not been set, you will
need to set the jumper of the primary drive to "Master," and if you are
installing a secondary drive, the jumpers would be set to "Slave." The
master drive is the drive that the computer boots to first when it
starts up. The jumpers are pins located on the block or end of the hard
drive.Resetting the BIOS default should make the system recognize the drive. Or Press F6 to install third-party SCSI drivers.
Sorry to break the bad news, but when one hard drive fails in a RAID 0 configuration, all data is lost. Your only chance is to take it to a professional data recovery center, where you could be charged hundreds, or thousands of dollars for a data restore. Seagate will do these recoveries for you.
RAID 0 has no redundancy, unfortunately.
Sorry about that,
You need a jumper on ID pin sets 1 and 2 (as if you were setting it for both ID 1 and ID 2) These pin sets work like binary, so set 1 for ID1, set 2 for ID 2, and sets 1 & 2 for ID 3. In this mannar, with just the 4 sets of pins, you can have IDs from 0 to 15 (no jumpers to all 4 jumpered..1+2+4+8=15)
* * * * * * * * 1234 set number 1248 binary ID (additive)

Hi, I've got bad news for you . Your hard drive is damaged for sure and you will need to replace it . It's totaly impossible to install a OS on a damaged drive and at least not recommended . To retreive data , you will need to disconnect the drive and read it in a external box from a healthy computer . The chance that the issue would be due to a defect SCSI connection is extremely small . Regards .
Read the manual that came with the harddrive - they usually mention setting your BIOS to properly install this type. Then check the BIOS to see if it has detected the harddrive. If it didn't, then you may have a cable issue.
Look at the service tag on the unit and go to support.dell.com to get the specs on the exisitng drives. Mine came with Seagate Ultra320 SCSI 80Pin 15K drives, You can shop for the 146GB versions and use your existing caddy's if you would like.
